Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were reportedly unhappy with how their royal wedding was overshadowed last year.

In the Channel 5 documentary “Royal Scandals,” royal expert Katie Nicholl said that the run-up to the royal wedding was a very difficult time for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“What should have been the happiest day of their lives was overshadowed by a very unhappy build-up to the wedding,” she said.

Before May 19, 2018, it was revealed that Markle’s dad, Thomas Markle Sr., posed for a series of fake photographs with Daily Mail. He also suffered from a heart attack and was unable to attend the nuptials.

Around the same time, Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Markle, called the “Suits” alum a social climber. She also announced that she will be publishing a book about the female royal.

Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal commentator, said that Samantha and Markle have been close. The former is also jealous of the latter. Nicholl added that majority of Markle’s relatives from her dad’s side of the family just want to cash in on her popularity.

Meanwhile, Markle’s issues with her family never stopped even after she wed Prince Harry at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. In fact, things just got worse after Thomas revealed that his daughter wrote a letter to him.

Instead of extending an olive branch, Thomas said that she was surprised to see the former Hollywood star blaming him for their family’s ongoing rift. Samantha also continued to give a series of interviews about Markle and said that the first installment of her two-part book will be released around the time of Baby Sussex’s birth.

In related news, royal experts are also convinced that Markle won’t give her dad and her half-siblings the chance to meet her firstborn. However, this hasn’t stopped Thomas from trying to make amends with his daughter. One of his friends said that Thomas is looking for a baby gift to send to London in time for his grandchild’s arrival.
